Balneology for banyas?

Started by Salt Dragon. Last reply by Sir May 14. 6 Replies

I read an interesting article on the health benefits of mineral and hot baths.  The focus is Japan and balneology or balnetherapy, which means the “treatment of disease by bathing”.  Whereas it…Continue

OK to be sociable while at spa?

Guys I'm curious about your input.  After being at a spa for a while - Korean Jumjibang (spelling?) I find that it can get a little boring.  Sometimes I strike up conversation with another guy. …Continue

I used to go to Dillon's years ago when I lived closer. It was a great place, very nude friendly. I suspect the place hasn't changed much since I last went.

Their website 

http://www.dillonsrussiansteambath.com/index.php

shows pictures that seem to me look like the place has been updated and modernized quite a bit since I was last there. That suggests to me that things are going well for them and the business is successful.

Have a great time there. Wish I could join you.

Has anyone been to Dillon's Russian Steam Bath in the Boston area.  I'm visiting this week and might have a chance to go this Thursday night.  I can't find much about it though.

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.
